If planting fruit trees interests you, but the intimidation factor involved with growing them has stopped you up to this point, take the time to discover whether the fear is warranted. The potential for fresh, homegrown fruit, aesthetic appeal, and environmental bragging rights should inspire you to consider the pros and cons. Once you recognize that your fears were overblown, visit us at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape to check out our fruit trees for sale in the Port Charlotte area.
Think Creatively about Space
Many potential fruit tree growers assume that they don’t have the space to plant a fruit tree. For standard sized trees, this problem can be a real issue since Orange and Tangelo trees will generally require a 15-foot circumference free of interference of buildings and other trees. However, Lemon and Cocktail trees lend themselves to container gardening. With a large pot on wheels, you can move the tree back and forth between outdoors and indoors as the weather demands.
Too Many Impediments to Health
Another common assumption is that fruit trees are too difficult to keep healthy. The answer to this is to buy from us! We offer nurtured and protected trees that you can be sure are disease- and pest-free. Keeping them that way is as easy as keeping the area clean, fertilized, and pruned when needed. Take a minute to speak with one of our friendly and professional staff for information about how easy it is to keep citrus trees healthy.
Requires Too Much Work
Growing your own fruit trees doesn’t have to take a lot of time and effort. Making sure to plan appropriately in the beginning will eliminate much of the potential for this problem. For the first couple of growing seasons, you’ll need to water frequently, but, once the tree is acclimated to the property, you’ll be able to scale back. Watering, fertilizing, and occasional pruning are really the only chores you can expect. This is another area where we can help substantially. Not only do we provide advice, we also provide landscaping services, so check into that while you’re here!
A Lot of Required Cleaning
Keeping the area around your tree clean will be something that you’ll have to take care of, but it should be part of your regular landscaping plan. Maintaining the area around the tree to be clear of debris will protect the health of the tree and won’t take too much time if it you make it part of your regular routine.
